Prayer shows patriotism - in English or Spanish

On July 4, 2010, the closing prayer at a Hyrum, Utah celebration was offered by a Spanish minister - in Spanish. The event elicited a number of letters to the local newspaper claiming that it was unpatriotic to offer a prayer in Spanish. I offer this Op-Ed in the Salt Lake Tribune and suggest that prayer can be a very patriotic gesture - regardless of the language in which it is offered.
